The Expeditions Page Kit started shipping yesterday. Side note: We made a long-overdue purchase of an updated thermal label printer and shipping computer, and Deb and Beth were a little nervous about processing orders on the big day. But all went well! When your box arrives, you can get started on making these gorgeous layouts . . .
Throughout the year we do our best to vary the color palettes and theme directions. This one is sure to meet your travel and masculine kit needs.
If you didn't get a chance to see the kit highlights, check out this 60-second video workshop preview.
Next, let's highlight a few fun details about the completed pages.
Layouts 1 & 2
It's my mission to improve my bow-making skills. I love the bow made with the wide grosgrain ribbon included in the kit. There's a great infographic that includes a "basic bow." I finally get it. It helps to have a dedicated fabric scissors, too.
Layouts 3 & 4
This ribbon trick is as easy as they come. Wrap a 14" length of pretty, green satin ribbon around the page and secure the ends on the back. Then, tie a bow onto the stretched ribbon. Next, tape a small length of blue grosgrain ribbon behind the two small black mats on the left side of the featured photo. It's a cute spot for smaller photos, stamped image, or a caption written with a white gel pen.
If you're in the mood, remove the paper between the luggage and handle with a craft knife. Tie a small piece of ribbon to the handle and tuck a travel sticker behind the image.
Layouts 5 & 6
Keep that craft knife and cutting mat handy! Cut along the curved edge of the cutapart and slide the Black photo mat into the slot.
Layouts 7 & 8
Cut the jet from the cutapart and add to the layout with foam adhesive. Glue the silver jet charm to a travel sticker to make it pop.
Build a little collage on the vintage envelope with the gorgeous houndstooth ribbon, stickers and a fussy-cut badge. (The cutting isn't all that fussy and should take less than a minute.)
Just a few simple touches bring the Expeditions layouts to life. Add your photos and preserve the beautiful memories!
